IMPORTANCE OF CONTINGENCY PLANNING
GUEST BLOG: Written by the staff at Trystar
In terms of maintaining normal business operations of a company, contingency planning is essential to making sure the least amount of turbulence is created when a disruption occurs. Planning ahead isn’t always easy or convenient, but sometimes having a plan saves a company thousands of dollars, data, or even lives. No one wants to encounter a business-disruptive situation but preparing for the inevitable is essential for a better outcome.
Here are just some of the reasons why every business needs a contingency plan:
- When there is an interruption to a business, having a secure backup plan minimizes loss of production. By spending time gathering necessary tools for a disruption, business is brought back to power in a matter of minutes rather than hours.
- Loss of assets are also minimized. During an outage, if power is restored quickly, then less data and other assets are lost. For example, a power outage at a data center is very expensive, averaging at $8,851 per each minute without power.
- The ability to have peace at mind allows you to focus on your business. After developing a contingency plan, you can carry on with your business as normal without worrying about extreme weather causing permanent damage.
Day to day operations are time-consuming, pertinent and demanding but it is still important to expect the unexpected and prepare for it. No matter your business, a power loss, extreme weather, crises or other events will disrupt your business. Each business should create a complete plan, that covers all bases.
